Date: Tuesday, December 9
Time: 2 PM ET
Webinar description:
The Interstate Chemicals Clearinghouse (IC2) is an association of state, local, and tribal governments along with supporting members from industry and the environmental community. IC2 was formed to ensure that state, local and tribal agencies, businesses, and the public have ready access to high quality and authoritative chemicals data, information, and assessment methods. The IC2 sponsored the creation of the Alternatives Assessment Guide to standardize the AA process. This webinar presents results from an alternatives assessment conducted using the IC2 AA Guide on copper boat paint data.
